Press Contact:

Salt Lake City, UT – Spirit Machines has hit the valley like an atom bomb. 

One of Salt Lake’s newest and most exciting acts, Spirit Machines is the brainchild of MIT chemists, radio hosts, and entrepreneurs. The ultimate creation of lifelong musicians who have spent over 10 years preparing for this. exact. moment. Preparing to rock you... and everyone else... into the next dimension. 

Spirit Machines is hard rock and features screaming guitar solos with melodic breakdowns over a furious rhythm section. Yet lead vocalist Pepper Rose’s voice makes it all easy on the ears. 

There is something irresistibly catchy about every word she sings. But it’s more than just a catchy song. There is cathartic, healing truth. And that’s when you realize:

Spirit Machines is about facing your deepest, darkest fears... and winning. 
Pepper Rose – Lead Vocals
Pepper Rose (@pepper.rose.slc) has music in her blood. The daughter of an elite bassist in the highly competitive Gospel circuit, everyone expected her to be a great musician.⁣
Even still, she didnt pick up a guitar until 2011, when she attended MIT for chemistry. After getting her masters, Rose returned to Salt Lake City, where she is bootstrapping a brand new chemistry lab at the U of U, with a focus on curing cancer.⁣
Naturally intuitive, she loves channeling the intensity of SM bandmates into narrative rock ballads that somehow are as relatable as they are out of this world.⁣
